With ongoing SCF & SWF support, Liverpool Neighbourhood Connections (LNC) has grown from one to five social enterprises, creating over 112 hours of work each week for disadvantaged women in Western Sydney. Almost $100,000 was paid in wages last year to local women.
For women who have taken up the challenge to change their life by completing LNC offered TAFE classes, these scholarships help them take the next step into employment. LNC’s strong employment pathways break down barriers of disadvantage whether they be cultural, language based or financial.
Alleviating financial stress for their families, the women take great joy and pride in the role model they become for their children.
